Have we hit peak smartphone?

There’s reason to believe the market may never return to sustained growth Brian Heater @bheater / 1 day Last Halloween, we broke down some “good news” from a Canalys report: the smartphone industry saw one-percent year-over-year growth — not exactly the sort of thing that sparks strong consumer confidence.

Samsung’s GEMS exoskeleton is now an ‘immersive workout experience’
